Hell, Gerry - If you leave, I leave...I still own Leicas, but hardly
ever use them. Of course my saying this will probably result in an
overwhelming vote to throw you out...:-)

I am sorry guys, but after this weekend I am selling all my Leica gear 
to a dealer to get a second digital body which I feel I need for 
commercial/wedding work now that I am getting busier and my workflow 
(whatever that means) is totally digital.

This raises two problems:

1. I will be losing a lot of money on my Leica gear, which is sad 
because it is really good gear but nobody seems to want to know when you

come to trade it in. They tell me they have had a M6 sat on the shelves 
for 8 months with no buyers etc. etc. and I believe them because I have 
known and trusted them for years. I have tied advertising it here and 
sold a little but it ain't easy so today it will all be listed again 
with 'final offers' on the list; and

2. More importantly I feel a fraud staying on this list where I feel 
amongst friends and colleagues now that I will not be a Leica user.

So to get to the purpose of this message - PLEASE CAN I STAY?
